Low Carb Burger Bun – ‘Cloud Bread’

Cloud Bread

Practically carb-free and high in protein, these ‘cloud bread’ buns are soft and pillowy, just like little clouds!

Cloud bread. I’ve been holding it off for quite a while, but I couldn’t ignore it anymore. Just google ‘cloud bread’ and you’ll get over 24 million hits! If it’s shared so many times, there must be something good about it right? I mean, something else than just being virtually carb-free and a good source of protein. And… it’s super easy. read more

Blender Banana Muffins

Soft, tender banana muffins made in the blender. Tasty can’t get any easier!

Banana Bread

I make a lot of banana bread. I bake one almost every week. We don’t like to eat ripe banana’s, and even though I keep my banana’s in the fridge to prevent them getting ripe within two days, I still have loads of banana’s that are too ripe for our taste. So I make banana bread a lot. If I still have banana’s left, I cut them uo and freeze them to use in milk shakes, smoothies and instant ice cream. read more

White Bean Blondies

White Bean Blondies

So yesterday, I made black bean brownies. Much to my husband’s dismay, who doesn’t like chocolate cake or brownies. Yes, I know, how is that even possible. He was hoping I would make something that he would like as well. The disappointment written all over his face.

Puppy eyes

But he was intrigued by the fact that I had made brownies using beans instead of flower. He wondered whether I could make a white cake as well. As in: anything but chocolate cake. Man, I had just cleaned up everything. Then he simply looked at me with puppy eyes, pleading… Alright. How about white bean blondies instead of black bean brownies. read more

Chickpea Pancakes

Chickpea Pancakes

We love shawarma. But we hardly ever eat it. Traditionally, it’s eaten with pita bread, with the meat stuffed inside the bread, along with lettuce, coleslaw and sauces. So, the biggest part of that meal, is a bread.

Pita bread

Just until recently, the boys didn’t care much for pita bread. And as I try to balance my carb intake, I’m not too keen to eat bread for dinner (I’m not strictly on low carb, though). But when I did our groceries, I got drawn to this week’s promo… 1 kg of shawarma. I couldn’t help myself, I had to buy it. read more

Pumpkin Banana Blondies

Pumpkin Banana Blondies

How do you like to eat banana’s? I don’t like to eat ripe banana’s. I don’t like the texture and the sweet taste. They don’t even have to be ‘overripe’, if they start to get yellow, they are already too far gone for me. I like banana’s if they are still a bit greenish, firm and not sweet at all. I actually keep banana’s in the fridge. The skin does get brown spots, but inside they keep fresh for a longer period of time. read more

Coconut Hot Chocolate

Coconut Hot Chocolate

Christmas is upon us. It’s such a wonderful time. I really love this time of year. And yes, it may be a little tacky, but I also love all that Christmas music you hear everywhere. All day long on the radio. I think I’ve heard ‘Driving home for Christmas’ by Chris Rea at least 20 times today! No Christmas without Chris Rea :).

No snow

Too bad we don’t have snow at all this year. Actually, we’re breaking records here every day. It was already the warmest November since they’ve started to record the weather. Now, it also is the warmest December.
It’s just confusing. For nature as well. Trees are butting, we need to mow the lawn. Weeds are growing all over the garden. It’s like we’ve skipped winter and gone straight from Fall to Spring. read more

Coconut Cauli-Rice

Coconut Cauli-Rice

I have always loved pasta and rice dishes. I still do. I could eat them every single day. Several times a day. Comforting Italian pasta dishes, spicy Asian rice dishes, there are so many great recipes. But when you’re trying to cut down on your carb intake, those dishes won’t exactly help you with that.

However, there is a great alternative. Cauliflower!

Growing up, I only knew one way to eat cauliflower and it actually made me hate it: cooked to mush and smothered in a floury béchamel sauce. It wasn’t until sometime in my twenties, that I discovered also other ways to eat cauliflower. Raw with a dip, cooked al dente with various spices and sauces, au gratin… And so I learned to appreciate this veg. But never would I have thought that cauliflower, one day, might become one of my favorite vegetables. Yet it just might get there. read more

Homemade Pumpkin Puree

Homemade Pumpkin Puree

While I could eat anything pumpkin all year round, fall and winter especially call for pumpkin recipes. Over the last years, pumpkin has become more popular around these parts, but it’s still a fairly unknown ingredient. Many people simply don’t know what to do with it. And it’s so versatile! Soups, stews, roasted, grilled, sweet, savory, drinks… The list is endless.

But… cutting and peeling a pumpkin is a tedious job. And potentially dangerous! Seriously dangerous. My knife (huge, sharp chef’s knife) often always gets stuck halfway through and as I can’t seem to move the knife in any direction, I end up ‘banging’ the pumpkin on the counter, like I was cleaving a piece of wood with an axe. I’m sure I’m not the only one. Right? Anyway, dangerous. In my mind, I already see a pumpkin flying through the kitchen. A disaster waiting to happen. read more
